What’s your favorite Halloween read?
Fall always seems like the perfect time to pick up a spooky book or two. I keep meaning to get around to reading Slasher Girls & Monster Boys, which is a collection of spooky short stories that came out last year. It feels like the perfect sort of read for this time of year.
Even though it’s not your traditional “scary story,” I’m currently re-reading A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. This time as part of a beautiful copy of the trilogy I picked up at Barnes and Noble a year or so ago. I always seem to come back to A Wrinkle in Time during the fall. Perhaps that’s because it’s the time of year the story takes place, but more likely because it’s about fighting the darkness, and I always feel like I’m fighting the dark, as the days get shorter.
Now, I’m not doing scary stories for Mildred yet, she’ll get those when she’s big enough for the Brothers Grimm. Instead, I’ve discovered a super cute children’s book about a little raven named Edgar, which is based on Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven. The book, Edgar Gets Ready for Bed, is possibly the cutest book this literary nerd ever seen.
